Stravaig Theatre 

Immersive, multi-media productions. 
Independent and commissioned projects.

Introducing the collaborative partnership of Scott Thomas and Emma McNeill. 

We aim to bring our audience closer to the space and environments that surround them. 


Who We Are

Stravaig Theatre is a partnership organisation by theatre-makers – Scott Thomas and Emma McNeill which started in July 2021.

Our goal is to use multi-media and unusual methods to better connect our audience to the space around them and its heritage. We like to highlight a space’s present day context, historical context and its mythological or cultural context. The culmination of these three can create a very vivid and open interpretation of the given environment.

We are Glasgow based, but our work has taken us across the country and we aim to explore interesting spaces near and far. 

Contact us! Through email or give us a message on our social media pages.

With our combined skills and interests, our theatre company just makes sense....

Scott Thomas graduated Queen Margaret University in 2020 with an honours degree in Drama and Performance. While studying, he created a heritage based audio-guide on Edinburgh’s Calton Hill. It is the combination of audio, landscape and heritage which most interests Scott. 

He is skilled in sound editing and operating. He also has a great interest in sceneography and has primarily written all Stravaig scripts thus far.

Scott thinks Emma is a fantastic partner as they are creatively alike, she contributes to  script writing with great ideas and is often one thought ahead of Scott.

Promotional Image for What the Dickens. The black top hat of Charles Dickens appears to be falling trhough time with a backdrop of Edinburgh Old Town

What the Dickens?

 Set at Christmas, Holly the time traveling tour guide leads time voyagers on an immersive, promenade adventure through Victorian Old Town Edinburgh to the very day Charles Dickens was visiting the city. The very time and place that gave him the inspiration to write 'A Christmas Carol.' Holly didn't expect to ACTUALLY bump into him. In her over excitement, Holly accidently gives Dickens an existential crisis! She and the rest of the time voyagers could be responsible for the end of Christmas if they do not find Dickens and set things right.

The Blue Men of the Minch

Do you know what is lurking in the water below? Two outcasts are making a break for it across the vast and unforgiving minch. Ah, but tis not the storm or the police they should be worried about.
You see, there are creatures, in waters deep,
who unwitting sailor may have the misfortune to meet.
If they are not successful in a battle of wit,
Then soon they will befall into a watery pit.
A comical horror that promises to have you laughing, whilst fearing for your life. You may be the one who can save our protagonists from their demonic demise. Unless of course, it is with the sea demons you choose to side.

Promotional Image for Berwick Upon TV. A box tv sits in the grass with a backdrop of Berwick-upon-Tweed. The TV reads Berwick-upon-TV


Berwick-Upon-TV was a multi-media event which blended audio narration, film, live performance and the local landscape of Berwick-Upon-Tweed together to create a unique experience. Using binaural audio recording, Berwick's history and heritage came to life in a fully immersive audio experience.
